While the month of January may be devoted to healthier choices and resetting one’s eating style after a long, fun holiday season, February is the month where sweet treats make a comeback! Whether it’s cakes, cookies or chocolates, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to shower the ones you love the most with confections made from the heart. We have an array of pans that can help make your Valentine, family, friends (Galentines!) feel extra special with a little extra sweetness. Here are some of our favorites:
A Beautiful Cake Bouquet
We have a NEW heartwarming 6 Cup Heart Bundt to add to the collection. Impress with a special cake for the occasion with the Floral Heart Bundt® Pan. This stunning pan is formed in a heart shape and is embellished with a beautiful floral motif that makes cakes look truly special. Whether glazed, sprinkled with powdered sugar or left plain, your sweetheart is sure to fall in love with this sweet treat. The smaller size is perfect to share too!
For other cake bouquet ideas, bake a pan of mini red velvet roses with our Rosebud Cakelet Pan. Add to cake pop sticks to create a “vase” of roses or gift in a box. Or bake a beautiful wildflower loaf for a sweet breakfast idea. The options are endless!
Heart Bundts to share with your Galentines
The love doesn’t stop there, especially when planning a special Galentine’s party! We have an array of Bundt Pans that can help make your friends feel extra special and can be easily shared.
